Abstract: The Division of Public Behavioral Health and Justice Policy is the contracted program evaluator for the King County Assertive Adolescent and Family Treatment (AAFT-4). The AAFT-4 project engages adolescents served by the Center for Human Services with evidence-based, youth-specific treatment, focusing on the Adolescent Community Reinforcement Approach (A-CRA) coupled with Assertive Continuing Care (ACC) and Trauma Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TF-CBT) when appropriate. The goal is to assure that youth receive treatment that is youth oriented, developmentally appropriate and offers the tools to succeed in the transition into the adult world. Treatment services focus on the interaction between youth and their environments and family (as defined by the participant). King County Assertive Adolescent and Family Treatment Project will expand a county wide, multi-year effort to implement evidence based practices throughout the county substance abuse provider network.
